The West Indian squad is well charged for the shorter version of the game as majority of their players were involved in the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League, 2014. The unpredictable Bangladesh side will do their best to surprise the hosts but the visitors will have to perform well in all departments of the game. The first One Day International will begin on 20th of August and both teams will be eager to take a lead which can boost the morale of the winning side.
